Composer, conductor and lecturer Eric Whitacre will conduct an all-Whitacre choral concert at London’s Union Chapel on Monday 2 August 2010 at 7:30 pm. Described as a ‘Pied Piper figure’ of music, Eric Whitacre has quickly become one of the most popular and performed composers of his generation. His ground-breaking Virtual Choir project of his piece Lux Aurumque has received over 1, 000, 000 hits on YouTube in just two months. In this rare treat for the United Kingdom, Eric will conduct on 2 August the newly formed Eric Whitacre Singers and Laudibus in a programme filled with many of his most popular works including Sleep, Lux Aurumque, Five Hebrew Love Songs, Cloudburst and Water Night prior to his recording with Decca.
